UBC Dialogues webinar: Empowering diabetes prevention
January 26 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Nearly seven million Canadians are living with prediabetes—that’s one in every five citizens. And 70 percent of those individuals will develop type 2 diabetes, which has debilitating, life-threatening effects.
At this webinar, expert Dr. Mary Jung, Associate Professor, School of Health and Exercise Sciences, Faculty of Health and Social Development, UBC Okanagan campus will speak about the community-run diabetes prevention program Small Steps for Big Changes, which helps those with prediabetes develop tools to make lasting dietary and fitness changes to lower the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Alumni, community members, and friends of UBC are invited to find out how you and your loved ones can ensure a healthy future.
